Odies Photos

I am going to dedicate a page to my Photos. Most of which are shot using my mobile phone.

I am seriously considering getting a Digital SLR Camera but I know I will then need to learn how to use it and my time is really filled up with other interests right now.

I usually see something that inspires me for my new Love that is Painting and my mobi is always with me, attached to me as if it is one of my limbs !!!

I am amazed at the quality of the shots I get with it and hope to share some here on my Blog.

Here are some photos I took during a recent visit to Glastonbury , Somerset.

Photographs for painting inspiration

As I mentioned on an earlier blog, I am now seeing things differently.

It is almost as if my eyes have opened up and I am more aware of the beauty around me.

I don't just see a tree.   Sometimes I actually see a face in the tree, something I would have missed before this new creative awareness surfaced.

Thanks to my Blackberry Torch telephone, I now have a handy inbuilt camera with me at all times.

This one was taken whilst walking in a local park.

Can you see the beautiful faces in the Tree ?

I recently went to Glastonbury (my spiritual home) for a weekend trip and got some wonderful shots all intended for painting inspiration.

I have actually had a few people comment on some of them and some have suggested that I maybe take up photography.  Perhaps some day I will.

Here are some of my recent pictures below from Glastonbury.

This one was taken at the top of Glastonbury Tor. How lucky was I to get a shot with a hot air balloon flying past :-)

Another one taken at the top of the Tor. I like the skyline and that there was someone  in the Tor building so it gives you a sense of the size of the building. 

Amazing formation of clouds late afternoon also taken at the top of Glastonbury Tor.

 The one below was taken during an early 6.30 am walk up to the Tor. The sun had recently risen and I could also see what was left of the moon.

Another similar shot of the recently risen Sun.

Chalice Well Garden. We had a picnic under these beautiful trees.

Some more photos of in and around Glastonbury. Below the Mists of Avalon. It almost looks like the sea in the distance.

I Love this one below Early morning Sun just risen and I could still see the moon in the distance. :-)

Another fab one of the Mists of Avalon

Some more photos from my most recent trip to Glastonbury May 2011

Does my bum look big in this ?

Below are photos of The Chalice Well Gardens in Glastonbury

Above my friend Natalie in the Chalice Well Healing Pool. A little bit cold !!!
I was a bit naughty and told her the water was warm ;-)

 Below are photos of Wells in Somerset. The smallest city in England. 

The beautiful city of Wells

All the photos above were taken using my Blackberry Torch mobile phone camera.
